Newsletter - make it easier to create a new edition

Hi Joe

I'm trying to explain to a client how to use the newsletter feature to send email announcements to registered members.  And I'm finding it is not as easy as it could be.

From the Newsletter Admin page (eletter/Admin.aspx) they first have to click "View/Edit Drafts" (while avoiding the far more tempting "Add New Newsletter"), then click "New Edition".

They don't have any drafts, so the first click here seems unintuitive.

Could we have a link in the Admin.aspx grid for "Create New Edition"?

Re: Newsletter - make it easier to create a new edition

I have logged this in the tracker for future consideration. I don't really think it is that difficult right now. If we put a new edition link then it could also result in multiple drafts for the next edition, seems like they should look first to see if there is a draft. We "could" make the grid smarter so if there is no draft it can link directly to a new edition page and change the link text but I consider this a very low priority, development is not free after all and there are lots of things that one could work on. I could spend years polishing every corner of every feature but I need to focus for a while more on things that actually bring revenue to sustain the work on the free things.

Best,

Joe
